PSA: NVidia has found the root cause of stuttering and VR performance in their drivers!

The two most important things for me were, disabling hyper threading in the bios and shutdown MSI Afterburner completely. Besides that I did all the optimisations from CptLucky8. Except in the Nvidia Control Panel i have triple buffering on and vsync in adaptive half refresh rate.
Before that i had good frames but little microstutters when turning my head.
I suggest Starting with OpenXR 100 and TAA 100 and the lowest possible ingame settings. See If you get a smooth, stutterfree image. Then turn up the things that are important to you.

With your specs, you should be able to run 100/100.
It’s just so much clearer.

Thanks! I’ll try the Nvidia settings you have and start at 100/100.

Very best,


I forgot, Motion reprojection always Off.

Now time wants to crawl waiting on this new driver😒

I think I’m going to reinstall Geforce Experience so I can snag this new driver as soon as it comes out. If it causes problems, I can always roll back.

You don’t need GEF for installing a driver though. Just install it!

How to install Nvidia drivers properly when trying out different versions

@CptLucky8, yes, I know, but that way I’ll be notified of it faster, in the event I don’t see a post here or elsewhere that it’s been released. Once I’ve got it, I can uninstall Geforce Experience.

On a side note, you’re going to have to publish an acronym dictionary lol… Sometimes I get lost in your posts just because you’re using one I’m not familiar with. I don’t know if you’re making them up yourself, or if I’m just missing their usage elsewhere, but either way I end up lost at times.

Even in this case, if you weren’t responding to my post about installing Geforce Experience (ps… please tag me when you respond to my posts, the way the forum software works, I might otherwise miss the posts), I would be questioning what you meant by “GEF”…

@KevyKevTPA bip bip (this is a notification :grinning: )

It is possible sometimes I invent some acronyms but usually they should resemble the acronyms I’m seeing in other places.

As for knowing when the next driver releases, I’d bet you’ll find this out faster here, along with the information whether it is worth it :joy: There are usually 2 information spreading faster than speed of light in flight simulation: new simulator versions, and new driver versions!


Also I don’t think GeForce Experience notifies you of hotfixes - just the major releases.

Either way, I promise to uninstall GFE as soon as I’ve installed it, regardless of how I end up finding out. I can’t say I noticed any performance hits with it on, but one of the problems with that statement is the very wide variety of situations within the sim (such as taxiing on the ground at Charles de Gaulle vs. at cruise at FL400 in the WT CJ4), such things are sometimes hard to notice without very controlled testing.

At any rate, I don’t much like GFE, because I’ll manage my own graphics settings, tyvm. If you guys happen to see that it’s out before it becomes widely known, please do let me know so I can get it installed and done…

Nvidia hotfix available:


Thanks for the heads up! I’m on it like syrup to pancake!!

Hope it fixes stuttering in SteamVr as advertised.

Installed that latest hotfix driver. No difference for me, I still have stutters. It does say it only fixes stutters in SteamVR though.

i fear that this is the case, the g2 stutters are not nvidia driver related and i dont think they will ever be resolved fully

Very disappointing, does it mean for MS version there would be no improvement?

would appear that way

anyone actually has registered a difference with a 2080ti using the older drivers and the last drivers using a reverb g2 using the wmr implementation?

i have a 3090 so i cant do a direct comparison between old driver and last driver

This latest driver fixes the SteamVR stuttering only I believe.

Hi all
Nvidia have just released a Geforce Hotfix driver 461.33 available through Guru3d as Geforce Experience won’t see it as a new driver.
Among a few game fixes it has a fix for SteamVR:
[Steam VR game]: Stuttering and lagging occur upon launching a game (Without using any Hardware monitoring tool). [3152190]

Anyone tried it yet as I’m using Oculus for openXR at the moment on a link cable for my Quest 2 but if this helps will try Virtual desktop again.

Its worth remembering this is just a hotfix, its not a full updated driver. Hopefully the full driver update will fix the stuttering issue that those of us who aren’t running SteamVR experience.
